Rushton’s Dia de los Muertos altar honoring Pop (Great Grandpa Ray Spurlock) included a Twinkie, a beautiful mini quilt (made by @h2spurlock) with a photo of Pop and some of his illustrations, a candle, a sugar skull decorated in class last week, papel picado, a skeleton, and a skull cookie. They had a fiesta during lunch with an assortment of Mexican food, including carnitas tacos (made by me, and they were sooooo delicious, if I do say so myself!). I loved hearing the stories the students told of their loved ones who have passed. Rushton is such a good kid, and I’m grateful that I get to spy on him in class every once in a while. And that he’ll still give me a hug in front of his friends.
